This report by NIVA and CISED has been prepared as part of the India-PES initiative, which was a collaborative effort undertaken on a pilot basis, by CISED and NIVA, for the development of integrated tools and consulting services for Watershed Management and 'Payments for Environmental Services' (PES) in India. Tools and methodologies developed as part of this initiative were tested in the Malaprabha river basin in the state of Karnataka, and the PES implementation was focussed on Participatory Irrigation Management.
This report in two parts titled "Feasibility of Payments for Watershed Services" is an outcome of a literature review taken up as part of the India PES Project, a collaborative initiative of CISED and NIVA.
